As a former 400Q owner, I also have to recommend the DA-LITE Hi Power screen; it doesn't have sparkles, unlike many high gain screen, and because it is retroreflective, doesn't have uniformity problems, even if not perfectly tensioned. It also aids in controlling contrast issues due to room light, and though designed for low mounting of the projector, still works quite well with a typical ceiling mount. IMO, this is the best screen material for the 400Q, bar none. My recommendation would be for a permanent mount screen, such as a DA-SNAP, if you can handle it or install curtains in front.
Also, if you're PC inclined, an HTPC set to 540P at 60Hz with either a sync combiner or RGB to component converter will give you the best possible picture from DVD's with that projector.
Best regards, and happy viewing.
We can screw up the other planets later!
